Over the summer holidays in July and august, the Herne Hill drop in will be running fortnightly on the following dates, between 11am and 1pm:

Friday 23rd August

Friday 6th September

The drop in is free to attend with no booking required, for those intending to hire or purchase, or we can help with your own sling for a drop in fee of £5 (redeemable against a hire or purchase, if you do go on to make one).

We offer expert advice and support in how to choose and use your sling or carrier. We bring a wide range of slings and carriers in a choice of popular designs available to try out, before hiring your favourites, purchasing from the smaller selection of new slings we have with us, or from the wider online selection to collect the next day.

Pop your name on our list, and you'll be seen on a roughly first come first served basis, but may be grouped with other parents for demos of the same types of sling. Come prepared to spend a little time, and feel free to eat, drink, feed your baby and chat to other parents whilst you wait. 

Alternatively, if you are expecting or have a newborn baby, you may wish to join us for our monthly Newborn Workshop on a Saturday morning in East Dulwich.


Bookable 1:1 appointments are available from 1-2.30pm and are recommended if you'd like to:

  • Bring along a sling you already own for some advice

  • Avoid waiting at the drop-in which can get busy

  • Visit later in the day

  • Get some expert support with a specific skill such as back carrying, hip carrying, or feeding in a sling.

Appointments last around 30 minutes and are £15. Please pre-book them in advance.

Alternatively, we also offer local home consultations.


We bring a small selection of our most popular new slings to purchase to every pop-up and workshop, with our full range available in our online shop. If you know what you'd like, you can purchase in advance from our full range online and choose 'click & collect' to pick up your new sling from the pop-up. 

Alternatively, if we don't have a new version of the sling you'd like with us, you can purchase and receive by post or collect from our out of hours box, from the following day.
